Southcoast Orthopedists Get Student Athletes Back in the Game

Web Exclusive

Two young athletes talk about coming back from ACL injuries

Mathew Cliff, of Westport, and Maggie Congdon, of Lakeville, have never met, but they have a great deal in common. Both are high school seniors, both are student athletes … and both tore their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), sidelining them from the sports they love. Luckily, both also found their way to Southcoast sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons — Mathew to Dr. Christopher Robertson and Maggie to Dr. Joseph Lifrak — who helped them get back in the game.

Here, watch Mathew and Maggie tell their stories in exclusive video interviews.
